Review

"Chloe Snow's Diary goes far beyond the expected awesomeness + angst of a freshman in high school, though it has both of those qualities in spades. But Chloe Snow, in all her hilarious brilliance, will also break your heart and make you bawl those "happy to be alive" tears. Amazing."

  (Lauren Myracle, New York Times bestselling author of The Infinite Moment of Us )

As if starting high school wasn’t daunting enough, Chloe Snow has to do it without her free spirited writer mother—who bolted to Mexico to find her “muse”—and alongside her religious best friend, Hannah, and Hannah’s judgmental, picture perfect family. Fortunately, Chloe has a caring dad; a new best friend, Tristan; and the lead in the school’s musical! In the spirit of Meg Cabot’s The Princess Diaries series, Chloe’s daily diary serves as the book’s format. Encompassing an overwhelming majority of Chloe’s record is her obsession with Mac, a senior boy with a girlfriend and Chloe’s secret hookup. Chloe, Hannah, and Tristan all have intense relationships with senior boys, which, aside from seeming a little improbable, starts to become how they define themselves. But despite Chloe’s dominating obsession with Mac, and the book’s abrupt ending, Chloe is refreshingly honest and unfiltered about very real issues facing high school students: unsteady family dynamics, drinking at parties, balancing old and new friends, and the stigma of slut shaming. — Caitlin Kling (Booklist January 1, 2017)

Chloe Snow wants nothing more than to be kissed by New Year’s Eve. She is a typical high school freshman, ready to take on the challenges of leaving middle school behind, and her dad is predictably embarrassing. Her mom, however, is another story: she has recently left for Mexico in order to concentrate on herself and her writing. At the pool, right before school starts, Chloe catches the eye of the school bad boy—never mind that he already has a girlfriend. But when she gets cast in the leading role of the school’s musical, instead of the most popular girl, the drama really begins. Writing in a diary format, Chastain captures a spot on teen voice that would feel at home in an updated version of the film Mean Girls. Underlying the humor and angst of high school life, though, are Chloe’s ache for her mother and her confusion and anger about her parents’ relationship. Readers will hope for the heroine’s continued adventures in future volumes. VERDICT An above average purchase for readers who love comedic, realistic fiction about high school.–Deanna McDaniel, Genoa Middle School, OH
